2022 Graduation Program

The cap and gown deadline has passed. If you already have a cap and gown from a previous JJC ceremony, contact the Graduation Office at graduationoffice@jjc.edu to confirm your participation in the ceremony.

Get excited: our graduation ceremony will take place in person at our Event Center on Main Campus! To ensure social distancing, we have scheduled two ceremonies. Masks will be optional, however, those who wish to wear a mask are encouraged  to do so.

Each graduate will receive up to four guest tickets to their ceremony. Graduates will need to come to the Registration Office in A-Building on the Main Campus to pick up and sign for their tickets between May 9 - May 19 (8 a.m. - 6 p.m.).

There will be no rehearsal prior to the ceremony. Graduates will receive instructions for the day of the ceremony at ticket pick up.
